There is a current workshop member with the same first and last name and/or the same e-mail address that you have just submitted for a new membership. If you are a current member but have forgotten your password or log-in name, please use the password/ID request form (or contact us) and do not submit this form. If you have deleted your membership and now wish to reinstate it, contact us and we will set you up again; do not submit this form.
However, if you just happen to have the same name as a current member, please add your middle name to the first-name text box or otherwise differentiate your name from the current member's. This will prevent confusion in the future. Then go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.
If you are using the same e-mail address as a current member (for example, sharing a household or classroom account), no problem. Just go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.
This Online Writing Workshop has two associated discussion groups/forums for members (and people interested in becoming members):
- The SFF-Writing group, for discussion of the workshop, submissions, ratings and reviews, the SF/F market, and writing in general. This group is open to all, and everyone can contribute messages to it, but all messages are moderated by Online Writing Workshop staff. Off-topic postings will not be approved. Commercial advertising is not allowed. Medium volume; available in daily digest format. oww-sff-writing
- The SFF-Chat group, for general talk among workshop members. This is where messages that are not appropriate for the SFF-Writing list should be posted. Commercial advertising is not allowed. Unmoderated. Sometimes high volume; available in daily digest format. oww-sff-chat
To subscribe to a group, follow the links in the list above and register an account. When the account is approved, you should be able to read and post in the forums.
